It’s been a long time since Sridevi has acted in a comedy. Some of her most memorable films have seen her in comic roles — Himmatwala, Mr India, and Chalbaaz to name a few.
Judwaa, in which Salman Khan played a double role is being remade. Now, it begs to be asked who would Sridevi like to see in the remake of her comedy film Chalbaaz. She was seen in a double role in the movie.
Sridevi says, “I think Chalbaaz will make for a great remake now. Alia would fit the role perfectly. She is spontaneous and an extremely natural actor. She can look vulnerable, innocent and at the same time, she can be smart and mischievous too,” she reasons. We agree.
Meanwhile...‘I want to do Mr India’
However, Alia Bhatt is keen to star in the remake of Sridevi’s other cult classic
Most ’90s kids have seen and enjoyed Mr India. And Alia Bhatt is no different. The sequel is being planned currently, and Alia is admittedly a fan of the classic.
While Sridevi feels Alia is perfect for the Chalbaaz remake, the Highway actress has a different choice. She says, “I would love to do Sridevi’s role from Mr India. I love that film and I think everyone does. It’s been three decades since Mr India released, but it still is a crowd favourite. If you ask me about remakes, this is one film I would love to do.”
